Birds will be the focus of groups from 7-9 a.m. Birders will meet by the Black Hawk statue at the Watch Tower Lodge. Expert leaders will help to locate both resident and migratory birds. Participants can bring binoculars or use the binoculars provided. At 9:00 we move into the Lodge for refreshments, including wild violet jelly, and a short program at 9:30. At 10:00 in small groups, participants will observe and identify native wildflowers. The Black Hawk forest is designated as a Nature Preserve and has many native species of wildflowers.
This event is one of the favorite events of the year for visitors to Black Hawk State Historic Site. The event is appropriate for all ages and participants can come for all or selected events.
